EIGHTY-YEAR-OLD KwaDukuza Athletics Club (KDAC) president Nikeyi Maarbeel completed the 21,1 km South Coast half marathon in three hours and two minutes, which is a great feat for a veteran runner.

He has dedicated this run to his son Kiron Kumar, whose birthday coincided with the event. During the race he managed to brave conditions that were very hot and humid. At 80, Maarbeel serves as an inspiration to KDAC athletes.
